Due to COVID, all government schools were closed from April until August. Champey was also closed , with classes cancelled for three weeks in April, as our student numbers were greatly reduced as many Champey students were sent to the countryside to their families’ home villages. Government schools have now reopened and students are back in classes.
According to the US CDC “COVID-19 risk in Cambodia is low. Over the last 28 days, new cases of COVID-19 in Cambodia decreased or stabilized. CDC recommends older adults, people of any age with certain underlying medical conditions, and others at increased risk for severe illness talk to their health care providers before traveling to Cambodia.” The current " Level One" status in Cambodia indicates that cases are stable or declining. By comparison, this is the lowest level, with Level Two being “ Alert” and Level Three “ indicating "Warning". According to the WHO ( World Health Organization ) there have been just two COVID cases nationwide in Cambodia in recent weeks and Cambodia continues to remain largely closed to tourist due to stringent health, financial and visa requirements.
Now that the government schools have reopened, our student attendance figures have continued to grow weekly. By the end of September, average attendance figures had reached approximately 70-75 students daily. Our students are clearly eager to get back to work.
Your continued support helps us to provide this oasis of learning and art to our students, showing them a new vison of the world and giving them new goals to which they can aspire.
We deeply appreciate your generous support!
